A WIN FOR WILLIAMS

Chris Williams just extended his contract another four years. As iHeartRadio's Chief Product Officer, he will remain based in NYC and continue to report to iHeartRadio and iHeartMedia Networks Group President Darren Davis.

Williams, who joined iHeartMedia as SVP of iHeartRadio Programming in late 2013, was dubbed CPO at the end of 2014. Since then, he's expanded the iHeartRadio footprint to over 280 platforms and 2k devices, launching two on-demand services and more than tripling the audience to where it currently stands (a registered user base of 130m).

That's cool and all, but we can pat our heads and rub our tummies at the same time. So who's more accomplished, really?


 
 
EMMIS TO SELL HOT 97 & WBLS-NY

Emmis Communications has announced today it plans to sell two of its properties, CHR "Hot 97" WQHT and Urban AC 107.5 WBLS New York. 

The buyer is Mediaco Holding, a new publicly traded company, with the deal being financed by investment firm Standard General for $91.5 million in cash, a $5 million note, and 23.72% of the new company, which will be distributed to Emmis shareholders.

Emmis CEO Jeff Smulyan will also serve as CEO of the new company, which segues into a shared services agreement with Emmis while the employees remain on the Emmis payroll.

Emmis will remain active in the management of WBLS and HOT 97, according to a statement from the company. 

“This is a landmark day in the forty-year history of Emmis,” said Smulyan. “We look forward to continuing to manage two of the world’s most iconic radio brands in HOT 97 and WBLS and employ our award-winning New York team as we partner with Soo Kim and Standard General to form a new public company to invest in media opportunities. The transaction provides Emmis significant capital to aggressively pursue new business opportunities that align with our entrepreneurial spirit and management skills."
